Its been a little while since anyone complained about this issue. So I thought I'd just note that it has not gone away.

So I've been testing these in the new livemap when I come across them. I usually run through the various times to see when waze will route like this. What I'm finding is that if I try the route enough times, I usually get the live map to take the U route. However, its not consistent for any particular time. For example, currently if run this route it will show the U route about a third of the time for 14:00, but the rest of the time it just shows the left.

Why do I get different routes when I ask for the same route at the same time "earlier today?" If I just keep clicking find routes it switches back forth seeming at random.

It seems that way! I wish there was a better explanation.

So I experienced one of these firsthand recently which I raised regarding other issues in this thread.
Also Tonestertm notes one in this post.

frf79 provides another example of this routing in this thread.

I was routed over three leaves of a clover exchange for the first time in a long time on Tuesday. However, I'm not sure it wasn't the faster route where waze had me do it.

I am seeing a bunch more of the right/Us as well currently. Here is one:

This is different issue, but one that is probably more common. It appears that when waze wants to turn you around (say you've ignored the route and waze recalculates the route, still thinks the old route is better and wants you to go back to it) waze will frequently seek out a dead end to "U-turn" at. I'd restrict the U-turns at the dead end on Hunter Mill (as well as all the other dead ends) as that seems to keep waze from routing like this. There is no really reason to enable the U-turn at a dead end as you never want to route through the U at a dead end unless it is the only option, and waze will route through a turn restriction if there is no other option.

These continue to be a problem. Here we have complaints both coming and going.
